>Interdisciplinary scholars are courageous risk-takers; they

>and other interdisciplinary academic locations having as
>their central locus progressivepolitics and intersectional
>theoretical and methodological approaches.

>As signaled by its title, the conference identifies and will
>provide a forum for discussing compelling intellectual issues
>currently driving feminist/critical politics and will bring
>together graduate students in related interdisciplinary
>academic locations who are working to transcend divides,
>dichotomies and boundaries of all sorts in their activisms,
>research, and teaching.

>As a .potential space. for making professional, intellectual
>and/or activist connections among and between graduate
>students and established scholars working on similar issues,
>the conference will be divided into four thematic seminars in

>sessions co-facilitated by one invited senior scholar and one
>graduate student whose own research, teaching and/or
>activisms fit within the rubric of that seminar.s thematic
>mandate.
>
>Participants . including the senior scholar . will each be
>asked to prepare and present short position papers (3-4 pages
>each) in which they address some key issues, debates and
>conversations of the seminar as outlined below. Following
>these presentations, the moderators will facilitate
>discussion and/or activities among the session participants
>designed to draw out common themes and controversial issues
>that participants identify as having significant potential
>for future work in the area under discussion.
>
>All proposals should be related to the study of gender as it
>intersects with other dimensions of identity (such as
>religion, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, national
>origin, mental, emotional, and/or physical ability, etc.).
>Graduate students committed to interdisciplinarity,
>intersectional approaches and whose work addresses
>feminist/critical politics should send a 200-word abstract
